Your Nutrigrill® steamer is good for more than just cooking meat, vegetables, and dumplings - it can make your dessert, too.
Steaming is also one of the easiest ways to make a sweet treat without the risk of burning or overcooking your dish. All you need to do is fill your Nutrigrill® with water, and turn it up to highest heat setting. Get the water to boil, then lower the heat and start steaming.
What sets this custard pudding apart from its brother, the crème brûlée, is the cooking method and its syrup topping.
Most homes in the Philippines are not equipped with an oven. Therefore, desserts are often made by steaming. Out of all the steamed desserts, the leche flan is certainly the most popular on any dessert table.
Traditionally, the leche flan is made with a llanera, an oval-shaped aluminium metal mould. But you may use different containers for your flan, keeping in mind that smaller containers will mean faster cooking times.
On your mould, place your syrup, then add your custard mixture on top. Cover your moulds with aluminum foil. Place the moulds on your Nutrigrill® steamer basket, and cover with your lid.
